Reports have it that Coentrao deal is still not dead. Real Madrid and Benfica have not been able to come to an agreement till now but new reports suggest that Real Madrid are willing to make a deal with some players involved as well.
Real Madrid apparently want to get this deal done and dusted rather quickly and are willing to exchange more than one players with Benfica for Coentrao along with some money.
I don’t know why the deal is taking so long, consideringthatRealMadridwant to sign the player since the end of last season and the player himself has made his desire to join Real Madrid rather public. This deal should have been finalized at least a week ago.
The reason probably is that Real Madrid do not want to pay 30 million euros for Coentrao.Real
